We are so excited to be sharing this special race bundle where you run across both California & Missouri! This bundle will get you $12 off the total price - just for running them both!
With the launch of our first race in our Run Across America - The 50 State Challenge, our minds settled quickly on California. When we considered the history of the gold rush to the current iconic California lifestyle, our hearts were drawn to this beautiful state. Scott McKenzie's hit song inspires our love with nostalgia hearkening to San Francisco, almost daring us to run this race with flowers in our hair and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in the forefront of our minds.
As we continue running across America, what better way than to move eastward through Missouri? And even more by highlighting the majestic arch for which it is known, in the very city that has been known as the Gateway to the West since the times of Lewis & Clark. This time, however, we have our sights on the east - so you might say that our race celebrates that with our using it as our Gateway to the East!
There are so many reasons on why you will want to run a virtual race. No matter your reason, we have a treat for you between our beautiful full-color bib to the large gorgeous medal; plus you have access to a certified running coach as you prepare for your race. You won't find another virtual race company that is as passionate as we are about giving you as much as we can for such a low registration cost. Maybe the real question is why wouldn't you want to run a virtual race with us?
Other virtual race companies give you an option to print off a cheap printout of a bib with questionable results that heavily taxes your poor printer. In our race, we will send you a beautiful, full-colored, high-quality waterproof bib (even better than what you get with a physical race) that you can race with and keep as a collectible with the bibs from all your other 49 states. In fact, because you are registering for our bundle, we will send you both bibs in the mail along with instructions on how you can submit your times.
Not only will you receive your bibs, we'll include your very own, collectible 3.5" medals to celebrate your achievements! That way you can throw them around your neck as soon as you cross your virtual (or real?) finish line! We DARE you to wear them around and show off just how beautiful your new, shiny medals are.
We will offer you a sizeable medal to commemorate your completion of the 50 State Challenge. There's no shipping, no cost to you - just a huge THANK YOU!!! for running all of our races.
Medal design will be released soon!
We are excited because we think our bling is pretty sweet. But we would be remiss if we didn't share how much more excited we are to offer this opportunity for us all to give back to those in need. With that, our goal is to help feed the nation, one state at a time, as we Run Across America. For everything purchased in conjunction with the Run Across America races, we will donate 10% of the proceeds to a local food bank in the state highlighted for the race. In this case, we will all be running and donating those proceeds to local California & Missouri Food Banks.
Just think how many pounds of food we can all give together as we all join together and Run for GOOD. We're excited to be a part and can't wait to see how this grows state by state as we journey across America!
We've always wanted to say that. In all seriousness, on top of these amazing medals, you can also do the following:
